Pupils at Jewell Academy enjoyed festive fun at the school through a Christmas door competition.

Members of Jewell’s Student Voice voted for the event to take place and a representative for each Year group, from 2 through to 6, was responsible for making sure all 15 doors in the school were given a Christmas theme.

It is the first time the competition has taken place at the school and Alexandra Waddington, Principal at the Bournemouth primary school, said it was motivated by a desire for an event that would bring the whole school together. Pictured below are a selection of the entries.

Mrs Waddington explained: ‘’Our Student Voice, which serves as a student council, challenged us all to some festive fun and asked us to decorate our classroom doors. The festive door competition was a way of showing that Christmas is not cancelled despite all the coronavirus restrictions in place at the school which have stopped us from getting together in big groups. However, this competition allowed the whole school to take part. It was wonderful to see the creations of each year group brightening up the doors of the school.’’ 

The winning entry was a fireplace with electric candles from Moonstone Class and the Year 6 students were rewarded with lemonade, popcorn and a Christmas film for the afternoon.
